The words of jesus hold much wisdom? Than why do christians ignore those words? I have stated that if every one lived by Matthew 25:32-46 the world would be wonderful. Do YOU live by those words?
Put your actions where your words are.
And IF some one TRYS to live by the wisdom you speak of I will respect them, however the picking and choosing to suit the lifestyle and justify themselves I do not respect
I agree with this! This is what bothers me the most about the Christian religion and the Bible.

You can find a some good advice in the Bible, but if you followed all of the words in the Bible, you would more than likely end up in prison.

For example, most people know someone who is an alcoholic or has a drinking problem. If you were a parent who had a son, and that son was an alcoholic, the Bible explains to you how to deal with that problem.

"Deuteronomy 21:18-21

21:18 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:
21:19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;
21:20 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.
21:21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear."

OK...unless I am mistaken, stoning someone until they die, that is assault and manslaughter!!! If a Christian says they follow the Bible, and they try this with their loved one who is an alcoholic, I really hope they have a good lawyer to keep them out of prison!

Sounds like exactly what anyone from any other religion would say. They all think they "know". At some point you have to respect the the truth, which is that none of us know if there is or is not a good. In the unlikely event there is a god, no one knows if any of our religions truly represent that god. And if by some exceptionally rare chance, one of our religions is truly from god, know one knows which one.
You can tell yourself you know, but you only believe. If you ever learn to accept that, you can take a much more honest look at the world.
I do know...
He saved me!
Hope you figure it out soon... Not much time left!
Amen!

How do you know? Can you give me a list of examples on how one can know a God exists.
#1 you feel it in your soul!
#2 you see Him/His hand in all things!
#3 you know some things are just Wrong... Like Killing Babies!

What are the most infamous examples of intentional daifs? Buddhist protesters, the Koresh compound, the spark of the Arab Spring? No, historically it was Christians burning thousands of grandmothers.

peace, to all , boy i am with it this morning....
I read all of your comments each day.

The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.

It has never been verified that this ever happened. Every religion has stories of miracles accomplished by different gods. Why do you believe your particular religion's accounts of miracles, and disbelief the rest?

Restored all that I let satan take from me too!
God is Good!

Now you have the RIGHT to your opinion! I DON'T belong to a CULT! The Bible says God's Word will CONFOUND the Non-believer! You know, I used to be where you are & thinking the way you think until JESUS knocked on my heart & I let Him in! You see, I know the things you say about me & Jesus ONLY come from SATAN!! Believe me, Satan is REAL also & is here ONLY to kill, steal, & destroy!! SATAN is also a Liar & the father of ALL LIES!
Great post!

God doesn't want anyone to go to hell. It's a choice a person makes. Like the choice you are making to not believe. But God actually gives us ALL a measure of faith. There is a VOID within you that you will NEVER b filled with anything else. Are you really at peace? When trouble comes, how do you handle adversity? Do you love people?
People who are close to God and KNOW HIM ...not know of Him ...(That's the HUGE difference) will love all people and you will know who they are. This has been said by many they out this post. GOD is GOOD ALL the TIME! If you truly seemed Him out you to would find this to b true. You are only hurting yourself, possibly your friends and YOUR own FAMILY by denying the CREATOR! Surely with as intelligent as you sound you are checking ALL resources available. Human body alone...arteries, heart, EYE... Come on... The BIBLE is being fulfilled whether you believe or not. It will ALL come to pass... Hate or LOVE on... GOD BLESS YOU ALL! Thank you God for persuing me and SAVING me..from ME!
"Like the choice you are making to not believe"
I think you are posting to someone else...
I thank Jesus everyday for saving me... Amen!
God Bless you, and yours!

Jesus was persecuted & said Believers would be also! If calling me names makes you feel better, then, so be it. As for loving blood, we as Christians are thankful for God's ONLY Son shedding His blood for OUR sins, unlike the way SATAN loves blood!
Amen!

I like those verses...kind of like the "Do unto others as one would have done unto themselves"

There's a lot of people that do TRY and live by exactly that type of thing every day. The complications in that, being that hmans are IMperfect, NOT perfect, is that sometimes, SOME people have expectations, that NO one could live up to, because they're UNrealistic.

Why basic common sense is kind of requirement when reading such as well.

Muslims smash their heads in with concrete blocks... go figure!
